If you have Amazon Prime, you’ve probably had friends and family members ask you every once in a while if they can use your Prime account to buy stuff with free two-day shipping. Now whether you think password sharing is ethical or not, you can’t deny that it’s risky.
Each Amazon Household can have two adults and four children. Once adults agree to share wallet information between accounts (e.g. credit cards), they can share the following Prime features:
- Free two-day shipping.
- Prime Video.
- Prime Photos.
- Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
Amazon Prime Student accounts can’t be adults in a Household. Meanwhile, children accounts have access to all of the digital content stored on either adult account, including eBooks, audiobooks, Kindle apps and games, and more.
The fact that wallet information is shared means that you’ll only want to hook up with someone you trust, but it’s a much better option that giving them complete access to your account by sharing your password (in which case they’d have access to your wallet information anyway).
Does Amazon Household sound like a useful feature? If not, what else would it need to entice you to use it? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!
